North East Futures UTC provides students with Career Pathways into Cyber Security
From September, North East Futures UTC will be delivering outstanding Cyber Security content via Cambridge Technical Qualifications.
As a member of the UTC Cyber Group, we will deliver a learning pathway that will enable students to develop both the technical and employability skills needed to enter and progress in the Cyber Security industry.
Via access to online labs, professional qualifications and practical experience with employers, our students can learn subjects such as the Legal and Ethical issues of Cyber Security and Algorithms and Programming.
Throughout the course, there are many ways for our students to access relevant and up-to-date information on Cyber Security. Students in Years 10 and 11 have their GCSE courses linked to immersive labs, making the content more engaging and accessible. North East Futures UTC students are also offered an EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) in Cyber Security, providing a more structured development within the learning.
North East Futures UTC also have Palo Alto trained members of staff, so all Year 12 students will have the opportunity to gain a Palo Alto certification in Cyber Security. This nationally-recognised industry specialist certificate uses cutting edge technology to teach participants how to manage or prevent future cyber threats.
This is a very exciting time for North East Futures UTC, as we strive to close the skills gap within STEM Careers in our region.
